[image]A Bright Ring of Star Birth around a Galaxy's Core - *Credits:* G. Fritz Benedict, Andrew Howell, Inger Jorgensen, David Chapell (University of Texas [ http://www.utsystem.edu/ ]), Jeffery Kenney (Yale University [ http://www.yale.edu/ ]), and Beverly J. Smith (CASA, University of Colorado [ http://casa.colorado.edu ]), and NASA [ http://www.nasa.gov ]
*Description*: This image, shows Hubble's close-up view of the galaxy's core, taken in December 1995 by the Wide Field and Planetary Camera 2. The bluish-purple clumps that form the ring are the clusters of infant stars. Two dark, wispy lanes of dust and a pair of blue spiral arms are just outside the star-forming ring. The lanes of dust are being shepherded into the ring by the longer, primary stellar bar seen in the ground-based image...

[image]HST image of Globular Cluster M22 - NASA
Image of the central region of the Globular Cluster M22, a 12 to 14 billion year old grouping of stars in the constellation Sagittarius. The cluster's core measures 3.3 light years across. Inset image taken June 1995 shows the entire globular cluster of about 10 million stars. Images were taken by Hubble Space Telescope's HST Wide Field Planetary Camera 2 WFPC2 in year 1999. .

[image]A Closer Hubble Encounter With Mars - Pathfinder Landing Site - Steve Lee (University of Colorado), Jim Bell (Cornell University), Mike Wolff (Space Science Institute), and NASA
Taking advantage of Mars's closest approach to Earth in eight years, astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have taken the space-based observatory's sharpest views yet of the Red Planet. NASA is releasing these images to commemorate the second anniversary of the Mars Pathfinder landing. The lander and its rover, Sojourner, touched down on the Red Planet's rolling hills on July 4, 1997, embarking on an historic three-month mission to gather information on the planet's atmosphere, climate...

[image]Astronomers View Comet Impact with Jupiter - NASA
*Description*: When astronomer Heidi Hammel saw the first raw images downlinked from the telescope's Wide Field Planetary Camera 2, she exclaimed, "In my dreams we couldn't have gotten any better!" Shown in this image are the scientists who saw those images as the telescope transmitted them to Earth.

*Description*: Hubble 5 is a striking example of a "butterfly" or bipolar (two-lobed) nebula. The heat generated by fast winds causes each of the lobes to expand, much like a pair of balloons with internal heaters. This observation was taken Sept. 9, 1997 by the Hubble telescope's Wide Field and Planetary Camera 2. Hubble 5 is 2,200 light-years away in the constellation Sagittarius.

*Description*: [RIGHT] - This NASA Hubble Space Telescope Wide Field and Planetary Camera 2 image shows the glowing gas ring around supernova 1987A, as it appeared in 1994. The gas, excited by light from the explosion, has been fading for a decade. [LEFT] - Recent Hubble telescope observations show a brightening knot on the upper right side of the ring. This is the site of a powerful collision between an outward moving blast wave and the innermost parts of the circumstellar ring...

[image]Feasting Black Hole Blows Bubbles - *Credits:* NASA [ http://www.nasa.gov/ ] and Jeffrey Kenney and Elizabeth Yale (Yale University)
*Description*: A monstrous black hole's rude table manners include blowing huge bubbles of hot gas into space. At least, that's the gustatory practice followed by the supermassive black hole residing in the hub of the nearby galaxy NGC 4438. Known as a peculiar galaxy because of its unusual shape, NGC 4438 is in the Virgo Cluster, 50 million light-years from Earth. These NASA Hubble Space Telescope images of the galaxy's central region clearly show one of the bubbles rising from a dark band of d...
